That woud be a waste IMO. That is just an attachment lens, which I doubt you would be happy with, quality wise.

This is what you want.

Remember you can also use the old Konika Minolta lenses on your camera. This should help to increase your options.

That's the kit lens, some say it's not up to much, others say it's a great lens, I've seen them for around that price brand new on line.

If you're interested, I have the Konica Minolta version, that you can have, make me an offer via postage +postage and it's yours Wink

I was considering what appeared to be the OP's budget. With no limit it's a cinch.

What do you intend on shooting with it and what is the budget?
